This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for GOLD. This prep builds off of my week­ly trade plan I made here:

The pur­pose of a pre­mar­ket prep is to find setups with­in my week­ly trade plan bias

Week­ly Focus Points

  • Only take trades accord­ing to a hypo unless there are mul­ti­ple con­di­tions met

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price is trad­ing with­in W1 demand at W1 QLo / W1 50MA in UT (test­ed 4 times) in a squeeze with W1 VWAP
    • Final­ly broke below W1 50MA and is trad­ing below pos­si­bly form­ing a W1 DBD tak­ing out larg­er time­frame demand
    • Retraced the move almost back to W1-C‑S 1818.073 BASE level

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Bull Engulf with fol­low-through high­er arriv­ing at W1 base lev­el and D1 VWAP in DT
    • Mid D1/H4 swing
    • H4 Phase 2 (with H4-C‑D 1795 BASE) arriv­ing at W1-C‑S 1818.073 BASE (above there is more H4 sup­ply so we could see a reac­tion) with some slow­ing down although some demand is formed giv­ing H4-C‑D 1809 high in dis­tri­b­u­tion curve
    • Pre­mar­ket: H4 Bear Engulf before reach­ing W1 Base lev­el clos­ing in new­ly formed H4 demand (high in dis­tri­b­u­tion curve)
  • Trend
    • Mixed trend: H4 Up, D1 down, W1 up
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Imbal­ance
    • ADR: 26886
    • ASR: 15311
      • 390
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1812.570
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1780.570


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1795 BASE inside val­ue at VAL
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.7xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large Imbal­ance. With a retrace­ment to almost hit­ting W1 Base lev­el (although not hit) and H4 bear Engulf we could see a rever­sal around these lev­els. Although due to no near­by D1 sup­plies over­head we could see a con­tin­u­a­tion to the move.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Swing Rever­sal / Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: W1 base retrace­ment, H4 bear Engulf in larg­er time frame bear­ish sentiment.
    • Pre­ferred: Ear­ly take out of LTF demand, IB exten­sion down (momen­tum) with sus­tained auction. 
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Continuation
    • Nar­ra­tive: Fol­low-through on D1 move
    • Pre­ferred: Hit­ting W1 base lev­el, Bull­ish Price action on momentum.

  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 3 trades 1% risk, 3rd trade only if first 2 worked out
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
